I'm only mentioning a few here for you who are just tuning in, just beginning to look at what all the fuss is about... what you have to look forward to if you continue to wonder why things in the good 'ol USA and elsewhere aren't going as well as they used to.

I'm sure Robert H. Jackson, who was chief of counsel for the prosecution at the Nuremberg trials, would think this advancement in modern jurisprudence is just the cat's meow.

The United States as we once knew it, or thought we did, is finished.
Tuesday, December 10, 2013 Declaration of Legitimate Government
I wrote this some time ago but considering how our rights and freedoms have degraded even more since it was first published, it's worth reading again.

To love we have to unlearn those things we came to believe and live by, that were never really true... and keep searching for what is really true. Who we are, how we're being, is what we teach.

That fear of the truth results--when combined with the same fear in the rest of us--in the death, destruction, impoverishment, and great suffering of peoples who never deserved and don't deserve to be treated that way, yet continue to be treated that way, because there's not yet enough of us to stand up and stop it.

Essentially, I just want our children and grandchildren to have the future they deserve: a place to live where they have the opportunity to reach their full human potential, where all peoples live in peace and enjoy the full measure of freedom and universal human rights.
